Verdict: Dawn may not be the best place to get your news


A Ricochet reader — who can’t comment because she hasn’t yet decided to join — sent me the full transcript of Crowley’s remarks on Pakistan’s You Tube ban. I’m very relieved to see that in context, Crowley does not at all sound the complete cretin he would seem to be from the way Dawn reported it. He actually offers a reasonably robust defense of freedom of expression, apart from that line about protecting citizens from offensive speech.

Note to the anonymous Ricochet reader: You may as well join. You’re obviously into it, and it’s not that expensive.
